good morning, everybody. happy new year to you. good to be with you. good to be with you. i'm terrell brown. while revelers ring in the new year, the senate is also celebrating. just a few hours ago it overwhelmingly passed a bill to avert the fiscal cliff. now president obama is calling on the house to pass the bill without delay. the bill stops most of the tax hikes and spending cuts that were to kick in at midnight. tara mergener is in washington with more this morning. tara, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, terrell. well, a deal is now on the books to avert some of the impact of the fiscal cliff which technically we have gone over. now it is up to the house. in the early morning hours of new year's day, the senate began voting on a bill to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.
4:01 am
>> the bill as amended is passed. >> reporter: the senate voted 89-8 to avoid tax hikes for 99% of all americans. >> this shouldn't be the model for how we do things around here. but i think we can say we've done some good for the country. >> r if the bill eventually becomes law, the bush era tax cuts will be permanently extended for everyone making less than $400,000 a year. and families making less than $450,000 a year. it will also keep the alternative minimum tax for the wealthy from hitting millions of middle-class families. >> middle-class families will wake up today to the assurance that their taxes won't go up $2,200 each. >> reporter: the senate agreement delays $110 billion in spending cuts that were due to kick in today for another two months. but because the bill doesn't address spending, getting it passed in the house could be much tougher. >> the fact that the president won challenges partly on spending cuts is disgusting. the fact that we're not where we
4:02 am
need to be on revenues is disgusting. it's just disgusting. >> reporter: president obama said he wanted a grand bargain that dealt with taxes and spending cuts at the same time. >> but with this congress that was obviously a little too much to hope for at this time. >> reporter: house speaer john boehner has not yet publicly endorsed the deal. and even though congress did not meet the midnight deadline, tax cuts will be retroactive if the bill is eventually signed into law. terrell? >> tara mergener in washington, thank you so much. the bill also extends unemployment benefits for 2 million people. it prevents a 27% cut in fees for doctors who treat medicare patients. but many americans will see a tax hike because the bill does not affect a scheduled 2% increase in the payroll tax. it also kicked the can down the road on automatic spending cuts for the defense department and domestic programs. they've been postponed for two months. as lee cowan reports, that uncertainty has many business owners worried.
4:03 am
>> reporter: jo ann vinute is running the numbers. her payroll is due this week. although she at least now has a hint on what taxes to withhold from her dozen employees, that's only half her worry. unresolved spending cuts are the other. >> it's very uncertain and very unnerving and very -- causes a lot of anxiety and a lot of lack of sleep. >> reporter: she's the president of golden state magnetic. a $2 million a year los angeles company that inspects, cleans and paints high-tech aircraft and aerospace parts. everything from fighter jets to mars rovers. any cuts in defense spending could mean cuts in her business, too. and the waiting has her on a fiscal cliff of her own. what does it do if there's another, you know, month, two months, three months of this? >> it could potentially impact the entire year. it doesn't allow you to make any plans or focus on what your future expansion or growth or
4:04 am
anything is. >> reporter: it could shoot a hole in your whole year? >> it could shoot a hole in the whole year. >> reporter: california has the most workers associated with the defense industry. in 2010 the numbers topped out at more than 160,000 employees. so the wrangling in washington has a huge impact here. there seems an element of this that just is -- >> unfair? >> reporter: is that what you think? >> incredibly unfair. >> reporter: because? >> because they have a responsibility. and they're not taking care of it. >> reporter: her company did have to lay off workers during the recession, but she says things were actually starting to get better and december was a pretty good month. but all this uncertainty, she says, puts her right back to square one. a problem that she says was avoidable from the start. lee cowan, cbs news, los angeles. doctors say secretary of state hillary clinton is in good spirits and making excellent progress. she's spending a second day on hospital care in new york being treated for a blood clot which
